Care Home Open Day
Date: 21st April 2018
Details:  Saturday 21st April 2018

Care Home Open Day is now in its 6th year.

It encourages care homes to open their doors to celebrate a different theme each year, with a few key values at its heart:

• Friendship
• Making connections
• Celebrating older and vulnerable people

This year's theme is Linking Communities and hopes to create lasting links between care homes and their communities. Held for the first time on a weekend, we hope this will allow more people to step through the threshold of their local care home and discover the warmth and laughter waiting within.

We hope you will join us!
